I don't know to be honest. The biggest reason for pinning the frame with so many screws/studs was due to that unknown. It's supposed to be able to withstand 4k psi. I'd bet it's stronger than the material the frame is made out of; but it is absolutely solid with no give and no fibrous reinforcement.
For what I'm using it for, I won't be babying it and I feel confident it will hold up. Time will tell.
